    The back is holding-up! LOL! I did another DVD today - 40 mins this time, but toned down the bits where she is twisiting the upper torso - that's how I did my back in, in the first place so took it easy. Touch wood, not even a twinge! emoticon How's the weight loss going, you seem to be moving down the numbers? I on the other hand seem to be STUCK!

    WOW! that dress is gorgeous, really love it, very classical cut and love the frill around the neckline. I'm with you, the flowers are a bit much and I think would be very fiddly to make. I'd love to see a pic of you wearing it when you finish, you're gonna look like a million dollars!

    My back has survived Jillian today! LOL! I did a shorter dvd and was good, not even a twinge. So tomorrow I will do a longer one and have the weekend to rest before I start again next week. I'm thinking of doing Mon & Tues, have Wed off, then Thurs & Friday and have the weekend off. That should give me a chance to recover. So you're going to make yourself a dress, you must be good at it, I'd be too scared to do that - I'm very basic at sewing! But I totally agree about the black - I don't know how it is over there but over here nearly every woman wears black - it looks like a big funeral congregation to me! There are so many lovely fabrics in beautiful more flattering colours to choose from. Let me know what colour and style you choose, I'm sure it will be beautiful. emoticon

    I hurt my back doing a Jillian Michaels DVD. I love doing them and did 5 days in a row which obviously was too much at my age! LOL! My physio said my back is in good condition other than the sprain and to keep doing what I'm doing, only make sure I have days off inbetween to recover. So I'm going to start with a 20 min workout tomorrow and see how that goes. It is getting cold here, I have a floor heater on under my desk and the aircon on too. Nice to hear it's warming up for you there. You know, it will be interesting to see who you can still recognise after 20 years. My boss went to his 20 year university reunion the other week and couldn't recognise half of his old classmates! Of course, most of them had gone bald! emoticon

    Hi Tammy, glad you are enjoying the job and that you are both well. I'm sure you'll lose that extra 10lbs, there's nothing like a goal to get you motivated! I am feeling better, it's been one week today with my back and it almost feels normal, it's been torture not exercising for a week. But I don't want to rush it and end up in the same mess or worse. How are you going with fitting in exercise now you're working?
